Whether you are heading to the beach with friends, taking a road trip with your family, or commuting back and forth to work, it is important that your vehicle is ready and properly prepared for the summer months. That is why All Star Hyundai has compiled a list of vehicle tips to ensure that you will stay safe this summer!
Get your Vehicle Serviced
Before you get on the road, get your vehicle serviced. Regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery checked and tire rotations will go a long way towards preventing breakdowns. If your vehicle has not been serviced according to Hyundai’s recommendations, schedule a maintenance checkup with us right away! You can schedule a service appointment by clicking here!
Look for potholes. Especially after a rainy day, potholes can appear everywhere on the road. Know the roads you’re on and keep an eye out for dangerous potholes that can cause damage to your tires!
Check your Tire Inflation
Proper tire inflation is always important for good gas mileage and safe tire wear. But in the summer months, it’s especially important to keep your tires running cool with the right amount of pressure to avoid a dangerous blowout. Use the manufacturer’s recommendation found inside your driver’s door jamb to find out the proper level for your tire pressure. You should also visually inspect your tires for irregular wear, low tread, and other problems.
Change Your Windshield Wipers
The hot sun is tough on windshield wipers, but you’ll still need them if you get caught in those summer showers. Make sure you are regularly inspecting your windshield wipers and replace them if needed.
Double Check those Babies
Keep kids and pets safe in the car at all times. Make sure your children are properly secured in their car seats and booster seats. Also make sure they remain seated and buckled in when the vehicle is in motion. If you are traveling with a pet, make sure the animal is properly secured in a harness or dog seat belt. Here are some different options for a dog seat belt if you are traveling with a larger dog. Pets are part of the family, so make sure they are properly secured also!
These are some great tips to remember if you are about to take a long road trip, or just for your daily commutes to work and doing errands! Summer time is a great chance to spend some much needed time with family and friends, but always remember these tips to stay safe this summer and you will be ready for any adventure thrown your way!
